The Last Judgement1923
13 1/4 in. x 10 5/8 in. (33.66 cm x 26.99 cm)
Lovis Corinth, German, (1858–1925)
In The Last Judgment we can see a meeting of the traditional with the avant-garde. In the print, Corinth employs thick and chaotic line work and the dramatic staging of figures found in traditional Northern European etchings, such as those by Peter Paul Rubens, who Corinth greatly admired. His treatment of the Last Judgement is apocalyptic and almost industrial; the armored archangel Michael smites the wicked with a large sword and rays of light emanate blindingly from his halo against the smoky background. This imagery calls to mind a battlefield, scenes of which would had been familiar to Corinth from World War I.
